Commuting by public transport is all set to change with the State-owned Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) planning to introduce low-floor buses in Kozhikode, Wayanad, and Malappuram districts.
Nearly 100 buses will be allotted to three districts under the JNNURM (Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission) for improving urban transportation, reports Hindu.
“Of this, 30 will be AC and the remaining non-AC buses. Modalities have been worked out to launch the services from March,” K. Mohammed Safarulla, Zonal Manager, KSRTC, told The Hindu here on Saturday.
Low- floor buses had been successfully carrying out services in Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram cities, he said. The State government had already requested about 1,000 buses, and 400 of them have been delivered to ply in these two cities.
